Classic Mustang Technical forum / Re: buying my first Mustang V8 or i6
« Last post by Topless_Horse on August 31, 2014, 07:50:14 AM »
It's hard to answer your question - you have to decide what you want and what you will use the car for.  If just putting around town then the I6 will be fine.  If you like the sound of the V8 then get the V8.  If you like the sound of a V8 but want a stick shift find a car with those features. 

Those prices seem high to me.  The best way to find out what competitive prices are is to go to ebay, find cars of the year you are interested  in, and look at those that sold (completed listings).  That will give you a good price range estimate.  Coupes tend to bring the lowest prices and fastbacks tend to bring the highest prices.  Convertibles tend to be priced less than the fastbacks and more than the coupes. 

If a car has a six cylinder engine that will reduce the value further.

The answer is YES to All. My 64.5 has a t-bird 429 in it. Major re-construction in engine bay. Move shock mounts, tranny crossmember, cut out and re-design firewall, remove inner fender skirts/ mud shields, etc., etc., etc.. Beef up everything; again, YES to All.

Just to be clear, the 69 is much, much different than the 65 in terms of engine bay size and being able to accommodate larger engines.  The 69's came with 390's, 428's and 429's from the factory (the 65-66's did not).  You will not have to do any cutting in your 69 to fit the 390 but may have to change some of the mounts - depending on what transmission, etc. you end up using.  I'd suggest going with headers rather than the exhaust manifolds - several manufacturers make them (JBA, etc.).  You may also want to consider changing to a 9-inch differential (you probably have an 8-inch now) to ensure that you don't break something with the increased torque.  The 8-inch will probably work in the short term unless you race it or abuse it a lot.

Use the neoprene pan gasket and VHt Locktight liquid gasket on both sides of seal. Be sure to hammer flat pan flange and distorted surface to quarantee a good seal. Don't over tighten. Run a couple hours, shut off-and look for leaks in area and on ground next day or morning. Sometimes takes a while to work its way through.

Classic Mustang Technical forum / buying my first Mustang V8 or i6
« Last post by Moonfly on August 30, 2014, 09:03:52 AM »
Hi All

I am looking into buying my first classic mustang. I have located two mustangs that I am interested in. One is a 1966 V8 (automatic) mustang with PB and PS, and the other is a 1968 inline-six (manual gear) convertible no power break or steering. The V8 is selling for $15000 and i6 is selling for $12000.

I am not sure which one would be the better option. If someone can let me know which option they would go for that would be great

Thanks

  Thank you for your input, these questions you ask will give me things to check out, which I didn't think of.

What manifold vacuum are you reading (hook up a vacuum gauge to a port on the intake)?  It's possible there's a vacuum leak between the intake and the heads or between the carb and the manifold.   Does it smell rich or is there black smoke coming out of the exhaust?  What is the timing at idle?  Are you sure the carb is set up correctly and that the float levels are set properly?  What is the fuel pressure at the carb?
